                         I. Major Research and Public Service Activities

Democracy House encourages students to become involved in their community. It does this in
three areas: having students provide direct service to nonprofits (working with children in after
school programs, working in a soup kitchen, etc.); assisting the nonprofit agencies with needs,
assessments, strategic planning, and other administrative services; and in teaching and
encouraging younger students become engaged citizens and active in their community.

Senior Year Option is a program in which high school seniors can take college courses while
they are still in high school. These courses are offered at the community college as well as in
area high schools.

GATEway allows high-achieving middle school students to take college courses over the
summer. Students are interviewed for the program.

New Pathways is an alternate route program for people who did not major in education while in
college and who want to become teachers. It is aimed at career-changers.

Advanced Placement Summer Institute trains educators to teach Advanced Placement courses.

Substitute Teacher Training provides training for those people with appropriate college credits
(60) to become substitute teachers.

In Service provides training for teachers working in area school districts to advance their
knowledge in content areas and in pedagogy and receive professional development hours.

PRAXIS Review courses are offered for those preparing to take the PRAXIS II exams in
Elementary Content Knowledge and the Middle School Math Praxis exam.

Middlesex County College New Jersey State Science Olympiad Finals is a state-wide science
competition for middle and high school students.

Middlesex County Teen Arts Program allows middle and high school students to come to campus
for music, drama and art workshops and performances.

                                    J. Major Capital Projects

Work was completed over the summer of 2007 to add a portico to the front of Chambers Hall.
This presents a more attractive entrance to the building. It also helps the building maintain a
comfortable temperature all year; because people go in and out so frequently and the single doors
are open so much, it was often too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. This should fix
that.

A renovation to the back of Chambers Hall is planned for this fall.

The largest kitchen in the College Center is being renovated. It is scheduled for completion in
September 2007.
